The committee on last year's
Fourth of July celebration desires to
announce to the people of Cass coun
tw that there will be no celebration
held In this city this year. This
course Is taken on acount of the
fact that Louisville, Murray, Weep
Ing Water atd other towns of the
county are making arrangements to
celebrate and the local committee
does not care to enter Into competi
tion with them and draw away from
their crowds. As they helned out
Plattsmouth last year, Plattsmouth
will help them this year and will
distribute its patronage among them.
It Is probable there will be a mon
ster celebration here next year and
the local committee feels that It Is

Mlnmiuri River Rising.
The annual rise of the Missouri
River la now on, the river having
been steadily climbing on the guage
for several days past and now be
ginning to loom up as a real river.
There la some drift coming down
and a further rise will doubtless
start a large quantity of It. It is
not believed that the rise this year
will be very great as the weather
bureau reports that the greater pirt
of the snowfall In the mountains Is
on the far side of the divldo uiti
will melt Into the streams flowing
west and south. The Tlatte river
was reported as having been rising
for several days but Is now on the
decline again, this doubtless bo due
to the excesnlve rains of some days
ago In the western part of the state
and In Colorado. River men do not
look for a very high stage of the
river this year. The rise Is not as
early this year as usual owing to
the backwardness of the spring.
